|Lettuce planted in a container in September|
I've still got lettuces, spinach and chard that I planted in September. I'm glad I did that since I'm still getting a bag of fresh greens from it on each visit. It was interesting to me that the lettuce at the garden is much smaller than the lettuce I planted in a container here at home. I'd decided that it may be easier to just plant it all at the garden next year. But the lettuce in the container is about 3x the size of the ones in the garden.
Plus, the container crop is clean and bug free. Can't say the same for the garden, and today I found slugs...
While the lettuce in the container required lots of watering at first, these plants are doing much better than same variety at the garden. Would like to hear of ways others work in fall veggies to existing containers, leave me a comment or share a link.
